You aren’t the only one who struggles with your craft

Here are my (to-date) favorite books on writing craft; they are all very different. Some are conversational others a bit psychoanalytical, and some traverse definition altogether, but all have helped me feel less alone when the myth of writers block permeates my creative concentration.

Joyce Carol Oates The Faith of a Writer– 2003, Harper Collins

Dorothea Brande Becoming A Writer –1934, full-text avaialbe online PDF format

Dinty W. MooreThe Truth of the Matter: Art & Craft in Creative Nonfiction–2007

Charles Baxter Burning Down the House–1997

Ray Bradbury Zen in the Art of Writing

Richard Hugo The Triggering Town–1979
